The film is called "God's Call". Right now it is going to be a short film that when completed will be shown to backers for a feature film.

As someone who wants to make short films but doesn't have the means or money to do it (being Australian doesn't help), I feel incredibly jealous that you got a part in one of them.

Sorry Matt. An eye doctor friend of mine told me about his private practice, "Business is either feast or famine. One day, you might have more work than you can hsndle while some days you just sit around and the paper-twice."
That's what it's like being an extra or having a film role in a short. Arizona from October to April or May is a busy time of the year with films, commercials, and tv pilots while the rest of the year(late May to mid October) you just sit around and read the "paper-twice".
Also the Grace of God has alot to do with it.
I am sure in Australia, you can probably get some kind of work since your season are reversed from ours. If you are willing to;
1. Sit around on the set of a film while crew sets up the shot for the scene(down time)
2. Be willing to take direction
4. Stand for a long time doing the same scene over and over again (different angles of the scene)
Then you can do this type of work. Sometimes you get paid but most of the time you don't. Above all else, be thankful you are working-THEN you could do this type of work.

The trouble is that I have no means of getting to these places (I can't drive, and my family won't let me take the bus), and that, to my knowledge, there'd be little work for a, well, "un-Australian-looking" man like me.
As far as 1, 2 and 4 go, I'd be fine with that. I'd give anything to be working...even if it's just for a 4-second shot of somebody picking up a newspaper to be used in a documentary on advertising or something...or appearing as an extra in something nobody watches.

EDIT: I only started uploading items to the stock footage section because I wanted to prove to people 50 years from now that, yes, I exist/existed, and also, I wish I could five an excuse to appear on-camera for a piece of stock footage (if anybody has any ideas, please tell me).
